NUS DEMANDS EX-STUDENT TO REMOVE BLOG POST OR FACE LEGAL ACTION

NUS has demanded ex-student Jeanne Ten to remove her blog post which crowdfunded for legal fees against the university. It warned her that it will enforce its legal rights against her if she did not take the posts down. This comes a little too late as she has already reached her goal of $5000. Jeanne thanked donors for their contributions and said: "I will not give up the fight. Please continue to support me".

The fees are inclusive of Goods and Services Tax (GST).

PROCREATION TAX BENEFITS ONLY BENEFIT THE RICH IN SINGAPORE?

It states that “About $250 million over five years has been set aside by the Government for the partner operator and anchor operator schemes.” Does this mean that the average spending a year to help parents pay for childcare is only about $50 million a year ($250 million divided by 5 years)?
